A dynamic student volunteer program committed to enhancing the overall wellbeing of students. Our mission is to create a supportive and inclusive environment by prioritising students' physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing.

  • About the program

    The purpose of the Student Wellbeing Advisory Group is to engage student volunteers as partners in meaningful activities and projects that contribute to the wellbeing of the student body. We want to provide students with a voice in the implementation of initiatives that serve their needs. Through collaboration, education, and advocacy, we aim to address the diverse aspects of wellbeing and help foster a positive campus culture within our community. Volunteers will take on various roles including:

    • Provide empathetic and non-judgmental peer support for their fellow students. 
    • Work in partnership with the Student Health and Wellbeing team to develop easily accessible wellbeing resources.
    • Assist in the creation of engaging events and activities that promote wellbeing, such as campaigns, days of observance, workshops, and other initiatives such as Safer Campus Community, Mental Health Awareness, and health promotion campaigns.
    • Advocate for policies and initiatives that prioritize student wellbeing, collaborating with relevant campus stakeholders to ensure that the student voice is heard, and that wellbeing remains a central focus. This includes supporting. the implementation of the Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
    • Collect feedback from students through surveys and focus groups to continually assess the effectiveness of wellbeing initiatives and to identify areas for improvement.
    • Refer students to appropriate resources, ensuring that no student feels alone during challenging times.
